Regional Reserve Victoria Chardonnay

Regional Reserve Victoria Chardonnay

Regional Reserve Victoria Chardonnay

Pale in colour with a slight green edge. Flint, citrus and floral notes on the nose. The palate is fresh and lively, with characters of lemon and lime balanced by a gently textured palate. Savoury notes finish the palate and give the wine nice length and depth of varietal character.

Fruit was sourced from a selection of premium vineyards from Dixons Creek, Yarra Glen and Tarrawarra.

The fruit is largely sourced from vineyards in the Northern reaches of the Yarra Valley. A terrific mild season with a good balance of flavour, texture and acidity. Quite fine and composed.

The fruit is gently pressed and allowed to settle overnight. The juice is then racked to both French oak casks and stainless steel tanks for fermentation. Lees are stirred in late Autumn to build more texture and flavour into the wine.

The De Bortoli family story is one of determination and triumph that started 90 years ago and is now told, generations later, across Australia.
Our heritage encompasses the universal story of immigrants making good in an adopted land, the rise and rise of the Australian wine industry and the tale of a hardworking and innovative family
who considers good wine, good food and good friends to be among the true pleasures in life.
Today, as a fourth generation enters the family business, De Bortoli is amongst the top wine producers of Australia with vineyards spanning 6 premium wine regions.

Over the past few years we have changed our thinking and our approach to growing grapes and making wine. The change is being driven by both philosophical and pragmatic factors but mostly by our desire to leave a legacy for future generations, an idea with resonance for any family-owned company.

De Bortoli Wines

“De Bortoli Wines is a third generation family wine company established by Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli in 1928. The couple emigrated to Australia from Northern Italy, from mountain villages at the foothills of the Italian Alps, near the historic town of Asolo.
Their son, the energetic and dynamic Deen De Bortoli, (b 1936 – d 2003) expanded and consolidated the business created by his parents. Deen’s children established De Bortoli’s reputation for premium wine including icon dessert wine Noble One and the Yarra Valley wines.”

Yarra Valley

The Yarra Valley is Victoria’s oldest vineyard area dating from the 1830s when three brothers, William, James and Donald Ryrie established a cattle property Yering Station. They planted vines; an act recorded as the first vineyard planting in Victoria. A few years later immigrants from Switzerland and Germany settled in the area. They planted commercial quantities of wine grape and established wineries. Among them St Huberts, Yering and Yerinberg produced wines to international acclaim and anchored the Yarra Valley’s reputation in the 1800s. Then came the depression of the 1890s. It was a major factor in the region’s decline along with other factors such as the consumer shift to fortifieds. By the 1920s the last winery ceased operations. The industry was resuscitated by medical doctors in the 1960s who caught the markets’ return to table wines. Mount Mary vineyard established by Dr John Middleton was a pioneer of the second wave. The third wave came in the 1980s with the arrival of James Halliday, de Bortoli and the prestigious Moet & Chandon. Since this time there has been a phenomenal growth. Hundreds of hectares came under the vine and millions invested in wineries. Now many of the ‘big guns’ of the Australian wine industry have a Yarra address. The climate is regarded as cool (cooler than Bordeaux and slightly warmer than Burgundy). The main wine styles: White – Chardonnay; Red – Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz.

Chardonnay

Australia’s most widely planted white grape variety. The heavily oaked styles of the earlier nineties are now being replaced with styles emphasising the regional fruit and greater complexity. The cooler climate regions producing styles of great elegance and finesse.
